Scholars Program

The University Scholars (BS/MS) Program is designed specifically for outstanding students to complete the requirements for both their bachelor’s degree and a master of science in electrical engineering in an accelerated five year period. The University Scholars Program is intended for very capable and highly-motivated undergraduate students who wish to pursue graduate study in the department. Students accepted into the program will receive dual credit for up to six hours of 500-level courses. The six hours will be applied to both their bachelor’s degree and to their master’s degree.

Undergraduate electrical engineering students who want to participate in the University Scholars (BS/MS) Program must:

  • Complete at least 61 credit hours towards the bachelor’s degree (transfer credit hours not included)
  • Maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale

If you are interested in the Department’s Scholars (BS/MS) Program, please see your adviser or any faculty member in the area of intended graduate study. For information about how to apply to Graduate School, please stop by the department office.
